of this report, and frankly the report has a lot of issues. maybe you have -- the rest of the -- the rest of us did not get this information until today. there is no mention of police reports, criminal cases resolved because of the specials involved. nothing about the lives that have been saved. they did a great job of covering all the negatives, but failed to see what we do right. we have exclusive right to patrol the streets. the law is on the books. we have asked over and over and over again. the police department refuses to even deal with that. so 1750 is a red herring, this ideas that we're getting an unfair advantage to patroling. that's not fair. any citizen can go to radio shack and buy a police scanner. the majority of security systems patroling have scanners in their cars. that is bogus. if you want to secure the channels, make it encrypted, and then we could have an issue there. you are broad casting it in public, not in digital format, anyone can listen to it over a trunking scanner. you talk about our uniform looking similar, if we are truly private, why is there a need to regulate
